Live United Celebration

Submitted by Molly Milroy on Thu, 03/23/2017 - 4:12pm

United Way’s mission is to Unite People, Improve Lives, and Strengthen Community. 

We firmly believe in our mission and our work is guided by it every day. At Celebration, attendees heard from highly dedicated staff members and community partners as they: 

  • Celebrated the financial gifts and the hours of volunteer work that each of you contribute
  • Honored the partnerships that strengthen our community 
  • and helped attendees see the impact they’ve had on our community.

See images from Celebration here.

We also had a BREAKING NEWS event, where our Early Warning and Response System was debuted.


At United Way, we Believe…

That we have the power to make our community, and our country a beautiful and caring place.

Thank you for all you do to strengthen our community and we look forward to working with you to build a phenomenal 2017! 

Thank you to everyone who joined us as we honored the great volunteers that made a difference in 2016 and prepared for what we will make possible in 2017.
